Tomatoes and Avocado

Tomatoes and avocado are the perfect compliment . . . for each other and for any meal. I like to slice a tomato and an avocado, sprinkle with olive oil and salt, and enjoy. Now, I am no health nut. I love snickers and corn dogs, but nothing feels as clean and satisfying as a delicious tomato and avocado salad. (***I like grape tomotoes because they don't shoot/spray like cherry tomatoes.) Eat it plain, or dress it up ever-so-slightly with onions and cilantro, and you have a enjoyable (and aesthetically pleasing) salad.

  1. i love avocado and tomato together! random chopped salads like this are a staple for my summer lunches.

  2. this looks muy delicioso! do you do your own food photography? i know you are a woman of many talents...

  3. I wish i took these beautiful pictures. I find genius photographers, feature their work, and provide a 'photo source' link under each image.

    **A note about the tomato salad. I always make it with grape tomatoes (they don't spray or have much juice). Yesterday I made this with regular large tomatoes. This is fine, but just remember to remove seeds. I didn't, and ended up with a large mushy mush. So use grape tomatoes, or deseed large tomatoes.
